I ordered this navy dress to wear as a Mother-of-the-Bride dress. The dress is beautiful. I am 5'10'' and wear a size 6. I ordered the 6 and it is a little tight, but the size 8 was a little big. Decided to go with the size 6 and not need alterations. The dress is definitely going to stand out and the back of the dress will look stunning when I walk to my seat at the church. Very pleased with my purchase.
